NEW YORK (WCBS 880) – Le Souk in the Greenwich Village usually serves French-Moroccan food, but this year they embraced the American holiday by serving the community a traditional Thanksgiving feast.

“Well we just moved to this neighborhood about two years and everybody has been so, so kind to us so in a way we wanted to give back,” general manager Lamia Funti says.

Le Souk, located at 510 LaGuardia Pl., invited its neighbors who might be alone or might not be able to afford a meal for dinner on Thursday, and many community members welcomed the hospitality.

“It feels like a community,” Bleecker Area Merchants and Residents Association member Liz Christiano says. “It feels like the right place to be—a place to be on Thanksgiving.”

Funti tells DNAinfo that she hopes this tradition, which started last Thanksgiving, will continue to become an annual event.
